Subaru will unveil an amazing Viziv Adrenaline concept at the upcoming Motor Show in Geneva. It is the brand’s smallest urban SUV which will enter the fast-growing (at least, in Europe) market segment.
Subaru has not offered such kind of vehicle for a long time. The Subaru XV is a niche model which is larger. The carmaker will show a prototype, but we hope to see a series car once.
A teaser published by Subaru is not informative enough. Nevertheless, complicated front bumper plastics, a lifted ground clearance and a ‘high-forehead’ windshield can be noticed by an attentive viewer.
Is it a crossover or a wagon styled like the Subaru Outback (pictured above)? The company will launch a new Outback soon, so, the Subaru Viziv Adrenaline may be related to that car. At the same time, the name “Adrenaline” hints at performance.
This concept car will be the 7th in Subaru’s Viziv (“Vision for Innovation”) series dating back to the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. Will it ever go into production or not? Who knows…The Viziv Tourer concept shown in Geneva last year has not turned into a production vehicle and remained a design sample so far.
We wonder what will be under the Viziv Adrenaline’s skin. Should we expect a hybrid powertrain? Subaru need hybrids to be in line with other makers, but lacks resources for development of hybrid powertrains on its own.
